2) What exactly does ISAF bring to the sport of sailing?

If you'd ever competed in a sport with multiple warring governing bodies (which I have), I doubt you'd feel the need to ask that question.

It's entirely possible they were simply trying to weigh in without having seen the specs on how to do it.

No it is not. Anybody who has ever been to a championship of any significance has had their boat measured. Anybody who has ever prepared their boat for measurement knows you'd better read the rules first. This is basic stuff for anyone competing above club level which the likes of DdR will have been through hundreds of times. The AC45 rule is short and sweet and the idea that those involved, especially those directing the process, did not know it was outside the rules is entirely unbelievable.

Doesn't look like a nice venue...

Didn't smell too good in the 1990s either. Possibly it's improved.

There is a philosophy that the punishment and the crime must be in the same magnitude.

So what in your opinion would be the correct punishment for directing junior members of the team to cheat and then lying to the jury about it?


 
What are you going to say if the Review Board or CAS find that didn't happen?  What if ISAF Past President Henderson is correct and there may not have been appropriate due process?


Student did not read the question. Fail.
